It is great to give your family a lesson in southern history. This carving has been around for a long time and the kids were amazed at being able to see them so closely.

Snow Mountain didn't entertain the kids for long. The area was disappointing. The whole Stone Mountain park and concessions were completely unorganized and not well planned out. The park employees didn't seem to know much about the park. The best part was the Sky Ride and hiking the trail to the top of the mountain.

While the bas-relief carving on Stone Mountain was very impressive and beautiful, I felt like I was at a amusement park that was dispensing confederate propaganda and kiddie fun. We went to the stone to find out about its geology and hike and enjoy the out doors. What we found was a carnival atmosphere and everything had a pricetag. Our... More

The carving is "one of a kind" and very different than Mount Rushmore. If you take the tram, you get a bird's eye close view. Unlike the other tourist rides and attractions in the park, this is well worth seeing.

One of the best rock carvings I have ever seen. The mist was covering the top of the rock and rolling down over the top of the rock picture made it look very real. You really cannot grasp the true scale of the whole feature and the work involved in the carving. Good place to visit.

I love Stone Mountain. We went to the Christmas and Snow Mountain. You get two hours but there is only two slides to choose from. One is a single tube and the other is family. The family tube is a minimum of 3 people so if it's just you and another person you can ride it. If you purchase the... More

If you enjoy history then take a look. The carving was much bigger than I realised. Try to go when the weather is clear.

We stopped here on a Monday late in the afternoon on our drive back from Savannah. It was somewhat deserted and most of the park attractions were closed. Costs $10/car just to enter the park. To see the carving you have to walk down to viewpoints from the visitor’s center. The park had changed a lot since our last visit... More
